Hello,

My best friend moved away a while ago and I really want to send her a charm bracelet but I'm having trouble with the concept of how to do it.

I understand how to make all the charms out of the clay, but I don't understand how you clip the charm to the bracelet or what is baked with the charm.

I think I read somewhere about baking the charm with an eye-pin in them but what happens from there?  I also heard something about jump-rings.  I am very confused as to how it all works!

I saw this video on YouTube and is that how it works? It was too quick for me to follow and she didn't speak at the part I  need!

I would really appreciate it if you could post picture steps or do a detailed description.

Thanks so much!

I think you might want to get a book on basic jewelry construction. If you've got the idea of how to make the charms and just need to know how to construct the bracelet, you might also go on over to the jewelry board and take a look at the tutorials there. There might be something that will answer your questions!
